So far. Even though we had a crazy, fun October. I have a feeling November is going to be awesome as well. We are only one week in, and already, Eli has had some adventures.
We spent one of the rainier days watching movies. And both monkey and mama may have stayed in pjs until after nap time. Eli feels the need to track down a toy from whatever Pixar movie he picks out, so Woody was on the couch with him while he viewed Toy Story 2. As you can see he also needs to hold onto the DVD and talk about it while the movie is playing.
We went to Lakeside to use some coupons that were expiring from the Wrapp app. I decided to skip the play area since it was a Saturday and chaotic in there, but Eli had fun with the light floor thing. His favorite was when the water appeared, he ran around yelling “wa wa! wa wa!”
Eli and his girl Kendal both had runny noses at church on Sunday, so we hung out in the parent room. They spent a large amount of the service attempting to escape from the room. Lucky for me, Monkey is a skinny boy and didn’t weigh down the baby gate step enough for it to swing open. They didn’t try to both stand on it together, which would’ve probably worked…
On Monday, mama had a migraine. So daddy took Elijah to the library. The library is always a hit, as are train tables. We have to work on sharing, because whenever a new child came up to play Eli would shake his head and tell them “no.”
Elijah had a blast playing in the small leaf pile that his daddy gathered in our yard. Once the leaves really start falling, he is going to be one happy monkey.
Because Eli loves the mall so much, we decided to take him there one night, even though it gets dark so early. He ran around the fire place and asked if it was hot. Elijah was the only kid in the play area, which has never happened to us before. So he ran from the peas to the carrot that makes the creepy munching noise to the watermelon slide. Then on the way back to the car we walked by the toy store. Monkey was smitten with the giant giraffe. Since it costs almost $200, gazing at him through the glass is going to have to be enough.
